    ABOUT THE PROJECT

    The Varsity Fire Station has reached the end of its life cycle after servicing the community for 46 years. A new fire station is needed to meet the growing needs of the community and surrounding area.

    The redevelopment of the Fire Station provides the opportunity to better optimize the space as a multi-service facility. In 2019, The City submitted a development permit application and a land use redesignation that included a provision for Calgary Housing and other services to the community.

    The City is building a multi-service facility that includes the redevelopment of Fire Station 17 and 48 units for Calgary Housing.

    The City is seeking opportunities to plan and build more multi-service facilities, making services more accessible and convenient, while reducing cost for land, space and building systems.


    Key project considerations

    The safety of Calgarians and continuity of emergency response were considered critical when choosing the site design and building layout. The following parameters and objectives also played a major role in influencing the design decision.
